Kingdoms of Immacus: Game Logo Complete

So the logo is done and I ain't gonna lie and say it wasn't an exercise of frustration. I obsessed over every detail and trashed progress several times. I'm not a font designer, that's an art in and of itself, but I powered through it, and I'm happy with the final results. I opted to finish the logo early on in the development of the game as it gives people some visual idea of things to come, and it allows me to make tweaks over the course of development. What looks good to me now may not six months out.

New Rugby v.3 kicks off

My distributor in the UK took receipt of their new games earlier than I did!

All due to Customs moving slowy to clear the goods on my end. Nevertheless, I got a good pic from the UK on how the game is laid out!

This has delayed pre-orders going out by a number of days, but rest assured the games are made, finished and sitting on a dock an hour away from me :)

Kingdoms of Immacus: Card Game Progress Report 3/27/16-4/3/16

So I finally finished the logo. Yay! I’ll make a post about it later, but I am very happy with the way it came out though it took much longer than anticipated. That’s primarily because I obsessed over every detail and didn’t use any of the elements from the old board game logo. One of the goals with finishing the logo early on is it allows me some distance from it through this process of creating the game to come back to it and make tweaks or add further details like a texture overlay. I’m happy with it the way it is currently, but who knows how I’ll feel six months out.

Kingdoms of Immacus: Player Elimination Vs. Victory Points

When I started making Kingdoms of Immacus, it was a pretty standard card game with some fun extra elements added in. The "Hero" acted as the damageable player, and once a Hero was destroyed, the player lost. The Hero was also able to cast spells and influence the battlefield, which made them an active participant of the game. The problem I found in the early play test sessions is that players would just wipe the board clean and then target the Hero without any real threat from it as it didn't have an active attack stat.
